Nephews birthday card and Invite card

A warm welcome to everyone.  Well this evening is finishing quite nice and bright in south birmingham, it's been nice and warm today when the sun has been out with just a sprinkling of showers.  Makes you feel so much better doesn't it with a little sun on your back.  I haven't been playing in my craft room much since we've returned from Cornwall, mainly due tiredness and housework, I can't seem to muster enough mental energy after work in the evening just lately.  We are really busy at work as we have a new hospital site opening shortly and it's manic trying to get all the paperwork completed for the recruitment of staff.

Anyhow just a couple of quick posts tonight - 2 cards I made over the past few weeks.  The birthday card was for one of my little nephews (I actually call them my little nephews because I am their great aunt - make us sound old doesn't it?).  The invitation card is one of several I made on the request of my dad as he was inviting us 'older' members of the family out for his 88th birthday lunch.  It was a lovely meal at the Fairlawns Hotel in Aldridge, we've been their before and I have to say they do put on a lovely sunday lunch.

Hope you like them, toodlehoo for now....
